Purse Cake

This design was requested by a young lady turning 12. She found a picture of a purse that she loved in an old magazine touting the "300 most popular purses at Neiman Marcus this year" or some such. I searched the web for a long time to try to find this purse, but alas. She and her mom did a great job of drawing it from memory, the mom bought the feathers from Michaels, and I did my best to reproduce it. I happen to love the design, and think it could translate into all kinds of awesome purse cakes in the future.

This same birthday girl requested a cake decorating class from moi for herself and her 3 girlfriend party-goers on her big day. How could I refuse? The pictures of their resulting cakes are below.

I have no idea if there is time for another purse cake, and I will pay you dearly for it--but can you send a purse cake of any design to get to me by Saturday in Colorado Springs? Email me at RG if you can! If not, no worries, we will send her one in due time.
